Reggie Bush for Jordy Nelson?

Postby TheBrazilian » Thu Aug 16, 2012 9:45 am

So I'm in a 12-team standard ESPN PPR league and I was wondering if sending Reggie Bush for Jordy Nelson makes sense.

My main concerns are that I am going to be too thin RB-wise if I send Bush (who is in a contract year) and I have a decent WR group, even if guys like Quick are big gambles. On the other hand, Nelson is Rodgers' second favorite target (barely behind Jennings).

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Here is my team:

STARTERS:
QB: Aaron Rodgers (GB, bye week: 10)
RB: Darren Sproles (NO, bye week: 6)
RB: DeMarco Muarry (DAL, bye week: 5)
WR: Dwayne Bowe (KC, bye week: 7)
WR: Titus Young (DET, bye week: 5)
TE: Fred Davis (WAS, bye week: 10)
FLEX (RB/WR/TE): Reggie Bush (MIA, bye week: 7)
D/ST: Bills (bye week: 8)
K: Randy Bullock (HOU, bye week: 8)

BENCH:
QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick (BUF, bye week: 8)
RB: James Starks (GB, bye week: 10)
RB: Jacquizz Rodgers (ATL, bye week: 7)
WR: Malcolm Floyd (SD, bye week: 7)
WR: Brian Quick (STL, bye week: 9)
WR: Greg Little (CLE, bye week: 10)
WR: Laurent Robinson (JAX, bye week: 6)
WR: Danny Amendola (STL, bye week: 9)
TE: Jacob Tamme (DEN, bye week: 7)

Welcome to the Cafe ;-D
I do not think either of them will repeat their last years performance. Nelson will not reach his touchdown mark he put up last season. Thomas should take carries away from Bush, and their is an injury concern with Bush as well. With that said I prefer Nelson slightly due to Bushs' injury risk. Also Nelson is in one of the top offenses in the league.

I don't see Bush holding the primary job all year, I'd pull the trigger

Welcome to the Cafe ;-D You've picked the right place for some great advice.

In a bubble, I like Nelson a lot more this year. Jennings is a ? to me right now with the concussion and Nelson is having a great camp. While I don't think he will duplicate his TD's, he is much less of a risk than Bush. I do worry how thin the trade would make you at RB. Does the other owner have a RB that you could target and make the trade a 2 for 2?

Thanks!

In my opinion he doesn't have much at all:

Isaac Redman, Pit
Ronnie Brown, SD
Jahvid Best, Det
Jonathan Dwyer, Pit
Delone Carter, Ind RB

I'm going to try and ship off someone like Laurent Robinson (JAX) or Jacob Tamme (DEN) for a RB2/3. I just have to find the right guy though. Maybe someone like Doug Martin (a little on the high side), Beanie Wells, or Pierre Thomas?

Any suggestions?
